AT TIDE'S EDGE (photomorph) & WHAT IS IT (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


what is it in me
that simply won't leave this be?
what demands I respond
despite a well-earned hesitation,
to land gasping, a beached fish
no longer even bothering to flap in dismay
at this painfully familiar stranding:
exposed again ... and still unnoticed

[non-dream free verse poem (basically a tanka, two-liner, and monoku, sans line breaks between) based on thoughts I came out of sleep this morning already mulling over. Photomorph "At Tide's Edge" (5-28-16 006v5) by Roswila]

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers, as the above is), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
